    You Can’t Fit a Square Title into a Round Url

    For whatever reason I always mix up the format for markdown links.

    Here are the possibilities (only one is valid):

    1. [https://agileadam.com](View my site)
    2. [View my site](https://agileadam.com)  ← the correct one!
    3. (https://agileadam.com)[View my site]
    4. (View my site)[https://agileadam.com]

    I’ve come up with a mnemonic I’m going to try employing:

    You can’t fit a square title into a round url.

    It’s a variation of the idiom, “You can’t fit a square peg into a round hole.”

    Square brackets. Round parentheses. You get it.
